What's New in Version 7.2
ForeFlight Mobile 7.2 brings support for the next generation of portable Stratus ADS-B receivers, adds panel connectivity with Garmin Connext, expands Data Sync to include Weight & Balance profiles, and improves the delivery of critical flight information with Graphical Flight Notifications.
Support for the new Stratus 1S and 2S portable ADS-B receivers
Stratus 1S and 2S offer new features and better performance, with the same pilot-friendly design that has made Stratus the best-selling ADS-B receiver. Even if you haven’t equipped for the 2020 mandate yet, Stratus allows you to take advantage of ADS-B weather and traffic information for better inflight situational awareness and decision-making.
ForeFlight Mobile Connectivity with Garmin Avionics
We are thrilled to announce connectivity between ForeFlight Mobile and Garmin avionics. When connected to Garmin Flight Stream, you can now wirelessly receive ADS-B weather and traffic, precise GPS position data, and dynamic pitch and bank information on your iPad or iPhone.
Weight & Balance profiles added to Sync
Our Sync system continues to advance with the addition of aircraft Weight & Balance profiles. Creating, editing, or deleting a W&B profile on one device causes those changes to automatically be applied to all other Sync-enabled devices on your account. This is especially helpful if you fly multiple aircraft and maintain several weight and balance profiles. Sync also makes it easier to set up a new device if you are replacing an old one. Weight & Balance profiles are available to Pro subscribers.
Graphical Flight Notifications for conditions affecting your flight
Flight Notifications containing alerts for upcoming flights now include a helpful graphic along with the flight critical information, making it easier to analyze the alert and stay better informed before every flight. Thumbnail graphics are shown next to each alert in the Flight Notification window, while a full-size image can be viewed by tapping on an alert. Flight Notifications are available to Pro subscribers.
Improved temporal resolution for global winds aloft layer
The temporal resolution of the global winds aloft forecast has been increased to three hours globally and one hour over North America, Europe and Australia. This will significantly improve flight planning performance calculations for fuel burn and time enroute, especially over these three continents.
Refinements to ForeFlight for Apple Watch
With 7.2 we've upgraded the Airports (formerly Weather) page, allowing you to view weather information from up to 30 airports, which are now listed under three selectable tabs: Nearby, Recents, and Favorites.
Not having this would make flying a no-go for me if I was going anywhere outside the local area. It does everything you would want plus a whole lot more
